to happen. >> michael connolly said, anything to add to that? is this the right time in the valley? is there a bubble? >> i would like to speak about the clean technology sector. there was a little bit of a bubble that emerged in 2005, 2006, 2007 time frame. what has happened since then is you see the landscape changed. there have been a lot of companies and vc's, founders, that are focused on very few investments in companies but are in it for the long run. the time and invested it takes to build a clean tech company. the difference with clean tech, there might be large facilities required, investment to build your first plant, for instance. we are seeing a change in the landscape. one thing i want to add, too, for clean tech, there are organizations like the clean tech opened that foster innovation and identify and help on to produce with that system, present their idea, put together their business plan, attract the mentors and advisers to help them build their technology. the incubators are contributing to a maturing clean tech and biotech sector -- sector. >> just a short comme
? first, you interviewed the people who are still alive. john connolly himself was very helpful to me. he had a great ranch in south texas with a stable of quarter horses, used to come to the guest house where i would stay very early in the morning, 5:30 or 6:00 and we would go and sit on the top railing of the fence watching the mexicans exercise the quarter horses and he would tell me about -- he answered almost every question that i asked about anything in johnson's career but took me through the assassination in great detail. among the things he said was everybody thought when they heard the shots that with the motorcycle backfire or that it was a balloon going off for a firecracker but he said i was a hunter. i knew the instant i heard that it was the crack of a hunting rifle. i talked to everyone who was with lyndon johnson in the hospital, still alive, who was in hospital with lyndon johnson, congressman jack brooks, lyndon johnson's secretary, kennedy, secretary, i have learned there always seems to the other sources that have been overlooked. when i was doing this, suddenly i cam
. let's bring in congressman gerald connolly of virginia tonight. congressman, good to have you with us. >> great to be back with you, ed. >> this story bothers me because this is the government getting in the way of an operation that was successful. why did the lame duck session of the congress do this in 2006? >> you know, i think republicans really don't like the post office because it's very big, it's quasi governmental, and it's unionized. and what is ironic about their opposition and their determination to engineer it to fail, as you said is that it is the only service to be provided the american people mandated in the constitution of the united states, which they say they believe in. you can look it up in article 1, section 8. the post office is right there in the constitution of the united states. and i think we have a sacred obligation to make it work and to create a new business model. they're resisting that because they want it to fail. >> why can't someone, and i'll ask you, in the congress bring forth a bill that will reverse this entire law? now what is happening here is t

or not the consumer will be impacted. >> reporter: connolly says the we've seen desperate for years and it has had very little impact on consumer spending. on top of that is important to think that the income tax is not going up for the middle-class dan kerman, kron 4. >> gary: >> jacqueline: temperatures will be warmer. that will continue for the rest of the week. and nearly 40 degrees and for the afternoon highs. nearly 60. as we take a look outside the satellite & radar. it it is going to drive that storm well to the north. with rain and warmer temperatures court tomorrow, it is still going to be cold. 30's in santa rosa. 29 in fairfield and for the inland valleys, 33 in pleasanton. concord, warmer for the bay shore. mid upper 30's. san francisco, and chilly but no freeze warnings or frost advisories. i do think that we could see patchy frost for the inland valleys. temperatures will be at or below freezing. afternoon highs, the afternoon mid-60s could see 59 degrees in cupertino. mountain view, san jose, inland, a little bit cooler. if that fog forms. temperatures will be about in the mid '50s
ravens. >> connolly tonight at 5:00, you can motivate -- finally tonight at 5:00, you can motivate the ravens by writing them a letter. as jennifer franciotti shows us, fans are going all out on this. >> at a lot of our young fans have written saying "you probably wonder why i am calling you by your first name." this is pretty typical of the kids try to find a personal connection to the players. >> these letters are being put up one by one at the ravens training facility. from drawings to columns to letters, each carries a heartfelt message. >> it is great to see all the support. is great to walk by and look good all the letters. just see all the support from the kids and everything. that is a lot of fun. >> to see stuff like this -- of course i want to win. >> it is incredible. sometimes i just look and read it and see all the great messages. it gets us fired up. >> the ravens are the only organization in the nfl making it this easy to reach the team. mailboxes are drop-off locations for fans. 1 school delivered 600 letters and more are coming in. >> almost every player has gotten
director. they just hired connolly's a rice as a contributor, you know, one of the emblems, if you will, of the republican party. square all tha up. >> harry republicans to have a history of attacking other republicans. that runs within the republican party. michael steele was on tv. republicans did not show up for this grand party. the news media understands this. the left news media. president obama's goal is to fundamentally remake the nation. what that requires is not by partisanship. completely destroying his opposition to bully tactics by calling as racist, biggest, sexist, homophobic. that is with this news media, how could you possibly call that a bipartisan speech. you have to be so on the kool-aid. they're running of kool-aid. it seems and conservative. coming up tomorrow -- lou: by the way, we recommend the offer highly. be sure to go out and take a look. author of police. appear tomorrow, author, former federal prosecutor, forensic psychologist , fox news contributor psychiatrist dr. keith and i blow. ubs chief in business strategist among our guests. links to our facebook p
, but on this issue of the fiscal cliff, they did not great. congressman connolly voting for the legislation. >> this was not a very solution-oriented congress, but this was a solution in the last day of the last session, and i felt that was the right vote. congressman moran voted no, like many house republicans. he said we're pushing off the inevitable, namely sequestration, those are the across the board cuts to all federal agencies. they could cripple northern virginia's economy. >> the way this sequestration act is worded, you have to take an equal amount from every program project and activity. that defies logic. you can't furlough for a month air traffic controllers or meat inspectors. what do you do in the grocery stores if you furloughed meat inspectors? >> reporter: conley is also fog used on sequestration, but for the immediate future, he says some good will come from his vote. >> most of our constituents are not going to see thousands taken out of their paycheck in additional taxation. >> reporter: these two, while friends, are in the same party and they still couldn't great on th
. and turning to reagan. instead of connolly who was able to do what he did. and bill clinton in 1992. took a democrat party who lost five out of the last six elections and turned that party around. right now the republican party is absent strong leadership. that's why we've seen the party go in the direction it's going. you know, i think it's fascinating that the past year and a half, past two years has even made me long for the days of george w. bush. because you remember what bush did. i mean, when trent lott, a good friend of mine said something he shouldn't have said about strom thurmon, they moved quickly get k him out as majority leader. they did not allow other extremist statements without punishing them. so i think chris christie if he keeps providing strong leadership in new jersey actually shows republicans you can stand up to the extremists. you can work with democrats in government. and you can be rewarded for it in a big way. >> let's take a look. here's chris christie talking to you this morning. he knows how to get things done and that means compromising with democrats. let'
